Panacur C Dewormer For Dogs

The treatment and prevention of intestinal worm infestations is greatly aided by modern dewormers. Very few have a broader spectrum or are safer to use than Panacur. In fact, Panacur is available for animals as broad ranging as cats, dogs and horses.

Panacur controls and removes roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and Taenia tapeworms. Active ingredient is 22.2% fenbendazole, an FDA-approved wormer for use against hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and certain tapeworms in dogs. Fenbendazole kills parasites by disrupting the energy metabolism of the organism. Fenbendazole is an oral, granulated medication which must be given for three consecutive days. Panacur can be simply mixed with food. Panacur is safe in pregnant dogs, heartworm-positive dogs and puppies over four weeks of age.

Panacur® Paste 10% is indicated for the control of large strongyles (Strongylus edentatus, S. equinus, S. vulgaris), encysted early 3rd stage (hypobiotic), late 3rd stage and 4th stage cyathostome larvae, small strongyles, pinworms (Oxyuris equi), ascarids (Parascaris equorum), and arteritis caused by 4th stage larvae of Strongylus vulgaris in horses.

Your dog can be infested with intestinal parasites even though you don't see any evidence of worms or symptoms.

With the exception of tapeworms, which can often be observed visually, the only accurate way to diagnose worms in your dog is to have your veterinarian perform a fecal exam. Upon examination of your dog's feces under a microscope, your veterinarian can advise you upon the presence of microscopic worm eggs. Even so, worms may be present without any eggs appearing in the stool. Thus regular deworming with a wormer (prescription or non-prescription) is critical to the long-term well-being of your dog.

Of course, your dog will still be benefitted by regular fecal exams to detect the presence of species of parasitic worms, which may not be killed by regularly available wormers.

Panacur Wormer for Dogs

The most common types of worms which are all addressed by Panacur include:

The most common parasite of the digestive tract in dogs are roundworms. Roundworms are several inches long, look like spaghetti, and may rarely be seen in the stool or vomit of an infected dog.

Hookworms and whipworms are very small and virtually impossible to see in the stool or vomit and can cause relatively violent symptoms in even minor infestations including bloody diarrhea, vomiting (including blood) and loss of appetite.

Tapeworms are unique in the fact that their infestation is typically caused by fleas and that they can often be observed in the feces of your dog as small, whitish, square moving segments. If you look closely, you may be able to see segments of tapeworms moving around your dog's anal area. If dried, they may appear as rectangular segments similar in size to a grain of white rice or a cucumber seed.

Your dog can be infected with roundworms or hookworms or whipworms or tapeworms, or in any combination. Their common occurrence and the safety of Panacur makes treatment for all of them at the same time, easy, safe and effective.
